Boston’s Snow Journal

Boston's Snow Journal


The Snow Journal tells the story of how the City of Boston managed the record-breaking 110.6 inches of snow accumulation of 2015. It provided practical information for constituents and shows how the City rose to the challenge of plowing and removing snow during and after the significant snow events. It features human interest stories and snowfall statistics using a combination of text, maps, photos and videos.
